Magnetic-Nanosensor-Based Virus and Pathogen Detection Strategies before and during COVID-19

Tuesday, September 22, 2020 - 12:00pm

Dr. Kai Wu and coauthors have recenlty pubsliehd a review paper on ACS Appl. Nano Mater. titled "Magnetic-Nanosensor-Based Virus and Pathogen Detection Strategies before and during COVID-19". They reviewed the popular magnetic nanosensing techniques including magnetoresistance, magnetic particle spectroscopy, and nuclear magnetic resonance. Magnetic point-of-care diagnostic kits are also reviewed aiming at developing plug-and-play diagnostics to manage the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak as well as preventing future epidemics. In addition, other platforms that use magnetic nanomaterials as auxiliary tools for enhanced pathogen and virus detection are also covered. The goal of this review is to inform the researchers of diagnostic and surveillance platforms for SARS-CoV-2 and their performances.
